Céline et Nicolas Hirsch Juliénas 2018
We’ve loved Céline and Nicolas’ Beaujolais-Villages for two vintages and we felt it was time to bring in one of their Crus Beaujos for BEAUVEMBER! The couple’s plantings vary from 35-90 years in age and are farmed organically and biodynamically. Vines grow on granitic sand and are hand harvested. Hirsch wines are always focused and structured, and this bottle defines the Juliénas Crus with its powerful pomegranate and peony flavors and medium plus body. This one’s great with poultry, tuna, lentils, olives, and soft cheeses like Brie or Chèvre.
